Hamburg - one of my favorite cities in Germany. It is Germany's second largest city (after Berlin) and considered its most livable. It's historic, full of eye-catching architecture and boasts some of the best night spots in the world.
The “Water Castle” is part of Hamburg’s historic warehouse district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is situated on a peninsula between two canals, and today is a restaurant and shop for exotic teas. Beautifully illuminated at night, it is one of Hamburg’s most photographed scenes.

Nestled inside the Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg’s famous concert hall, is the world’s first arched escalator. With more than 262 feet (80m) in length and in the shape of an arch, it is designed to give the users the experience of traveling in an “endless” escalator since they cannot see the other end. It is transition time from everyday life to cultural bliss.
The ride is 2.5 minutes and climbs over 70 feet (21.43m).
Sprinkenhof is a 9-story Kontorhaus (mercantile office building) in the Kontorhaus district in Hamburg. Built between 1927 -1943, it was then the largest office complex with stores, offices and warehouses that surround three courtyards. It also housed Hamburg’s first underground parking garage.

Kontor houses are former office buildings. The Versmannhaus was completed in 1912 and named after a Hamburg mayor. You can find it in Moenckebergstr. 29.
Please note the cute “Seahorse” in the floor mosaic.
